New at Haus: Joe Ivacic Glassworks

"In this current series Joe has returned to the interests and curiosities of his youth; bones, wings, religious icons and weapons. It's a little hard to tell from these preliminary images but these ornate candelabras actually have hot sculpted glass bones as their underlying structure. This work takes traditional techniques and ancient archetypes and beautifully combines them with a decidedly contemporary spirit and slightly macabre edge."
